With the enormous success that Avengers is enjoying, you didn't think that Marvel and Disney wouldn't want to milk this cash cow for all it's worth, did you? In a recent interview with Bloomberg News, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige laid out the next phase of the studio's cinematic plan.
"We want to do two films a year. Avengers is our only film this year, but in a week and a half we begin filming Iron Man 3," Feige says. "By the end of the summer we'll be working on the next Thor film, early next year the next Captain America film. Those are the three we've announced so far; we've got two beyond that that we haven't announced yet, but we're working on."
The two mystery films in development could potentially be the long-rumored Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man adaptations, but, of course, that's all just speculation at this point. But other than that, the studio seems focused on putting out as many Avengers related films as possible before the inevitable sequel comes out. Do you think this move is a good way to further promote the Marvel brand, or will audiences eventually get burnt-out on all of these Thor, Iron Man, and Captain America sequels?
